2004 Lower billet grill install (WITH PICS HELP!)

A few months ago, i baught the lower vallance grill (the one that goes down by the licence plate) from Andy Roach2004. He never put it on his truck (was still in the package) but nor me or him know how to install it. I've tried emailing Mr.Grille, but they keep tellling me they will send me instructions next week (which its been over a month.) There is just no way I can install the grill with the hardware it came with, it seems like its missing something like a bracket or 2. Can anyone help me out???? If you need me to take pics, i will of what it came with


Here are pics of the grill and the hardware it came with, let me know if you have any idea how it attaches.....

Is this the Bumper grill you are talking about??



There should be like 2 or 4 bolts/screws, 2 brackets, and the grill. Install is simple, you just bolt it to the frame.

Damn....thats AOLT different than mine....Mine had 2 small extentions on the back of the grill that 2 little brackets were bolted to.....then the 2 small brackets bolted to the frame.

It almost looks like this application it suppost to be stuck, or clipped on the bumper or something...Can you go outside and put the grill up to the bumper, and see if there is anyway of this fitting?

it looks like you're supposed to screw those little L brackets to the top of the valance with those little clips for the screws to go through so they don't just tear out of the plastic, and then use double-stick tape to attach the grille to the brackets? Wow that looks like a cheap and crappy way of doing that.
